I’m trying to sex 2 bourkes. One is the wild type the other being a Rosie.
Hope you may be able to help.
|Baby Bourke at 9 days old, ready for banding with|
Budgie sized bands. His feet are at maximum length.
Any bigger and he couldn't have been banded.
|Normal Bourke Parakeet. This is a male. His colors|
are slightly brighter than the hen's. Male Bourkes of
the wild variety also have a tiny line of blue feathers
above the cere (nostrils). Difficult to see in this photo.
